Ted, do you have a link handy from where I can purchase or download electronic 
 version of SDM based on 2012 IBC? Thanks.

Thanks, everyone for the help.

I was able to figure it out using a couple of versions of the Seismic Design 
 Manual published by the Structural Engineers Association of California. The 
 latest version, based on 2012 IBC, describes the method, but doesn't go 
through the calculations. I went back to the Seismic Design Manual based on 
 the 2006 IBC to get the methodology and then substituted the new deflection 
 equations (3 term instead of 4 term per 2008 Special Design Provisions for 
 Wind and Seismic). A little convoluted, but I got it done. It would have 
been nice if the problem would have been solved in the SDM.
